Oregon state Police are investigating a minor noninjury vehicle accident involving a member of the Wallowa County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred on the morning of Feb. 16. An outside agency usually investigates these types of incidents.

According to preliminary information, Lt. Kyle Hacker, 49, was involved in a near head-on collision on Crow Creek Road near Dobin Road.

Jeremiah Moffit, 42, of Lostine, who was driving a Moffit Brothers utility truck, was also involved.

According to OSP reports, the southbound sheriff’s vehicle, for undetermined reasons, drifted over the centerline toward Moffit’s northbound vehicle.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene to the WCSO yard at the request of the sheriff’s office. Further details will be reported once they become available..
